Invitation / Call for Papers: Sustainable Building Restoration and Revitalisation

31.01.2013
2. International Conference on Sustainable Building Restoration and Revitalisation – 2013

25th to 29th September 2013

Shanghai – China
Following the successful conference in 2008, we will hold the second session of the conference in Shanghai. We hereby invite experts and scholars in related fields to attend this conference and submit papers. During the International conference, there will be special training courses on historic building restoration.

Themes:
Topic I: Theory & Research
1. Research on guidelines and standards for sustainable building restoration.
2. Research in timber, masonry and earthen structures & restoration theories.
3. Traditional restoration techniques and innovative materials.

Topic II: Designs & Planning
1. Application of building physics in historic building conservation (energy saving, thermal insulation, moisture, acoustics, fire etc.).
2. Maintenance and evaluation of interior climate of historic buildings.

Topic III: Practice & Case-study
1. Case study on sustainable building restoration.
2. Restoration and maintenance techniques of rural areas.

Training courses & Company Workshops on innovative materials and technology
1. Design concepts for restoration by calculate-tools to describe the performance of the building before and after restoration
2 .Design concepts for building restoration include tests on site and in lab.
3. Application of class innovative materials for restoration.

Purpose:
The conference aims to promote research and application of the outcomes in the fields of historic building conservation, renovation and revitalisation at home and abroad by doing summary and reviews of experiences, to accelerate the application of novelty know how and innovative techniques to the management, renovation, utilization and maintenance of historic buildings as well as to strengthen in-depth dialogues and exchanges between professionals and practitioners.

Target groups:
Members of International Association for Science and Technology, research institutes, universities, government, engineers, architects, historical building preservation institutions, construction units, engineering companies, enterprises and associations.

Presentations:
Presentations should be closely connected to the above mentioned topics, attaching great importance to introducing new findings in building physics and building maintenance and restoration as well as reporting related research progress and developments; be focused on scientific fundamental theories and their consistency so as to promote the sustainability of construction quality and measures of restoration, which in turn, further facilitates the maintenance and preservation of buildings and monuments.

Abstract and presentation requirements:
The participants shall send their abstract (max. one A4 page) to the host committee via our conference website in Chinese or in English (deadline before 1st March 2013). The abstract should include following contents: the theme of the presentation, the name of the author, contact information and the outline of the presentation. Authors will be informed about further presentation requirements if the abstract is accepted. (The standard word-format you will find for download on our conference website)

Im Focus: Can the immune system be boosted against Staphylococcus aureus by delivery of messenger RNA?

Staphylococcus aureus is a feared pathogen (MRSA, multi-resistant S. aureus) due to frequent resistances against many antibiotics, especially in hospital infections. Researchers at the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut have identified immunological processes that prevent a successful immune response directed against the pathogenic agent. The delivery of bacterial proteins with RNA adjuvant or messenger RNA (mRNA) into immune cells allows the re-direction of the immune response towards an active defense against S. aureus. This could be of significant importance for the development of an effective vaccine. PLOS Pathogens has published these research results online on 25 May 2017.

Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a bacterium that colonizes by far more than half of the skin and the mucosa of adults, usually without causing infections....

Im Focus: A quantum walk of photons

Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...
